An aging recluse tries to salvage his antique furniture store and solitary way of life in this artfully nuanced drama nominated for 12 Israeli Ophirs. After his longtime business partner dies, stoic Yakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabay, The Band’s Visit) discovers his Tel Aviv workshop is near bankruptcy. When his estranged son Noah (Nevo Kimchi) tries to sell the property from under him, Fidelman hires apprentice Anton (Henry David) to refurbish a neglected Steinway that could save the business. An attraction between Anton and Noah’s pregnant wife Hava (Sarah Adler) complicates matters. Anchored by Sasson Gabay’s mesmerizing performance, director Joseph Madmony’s critically-acclaimed psychological study depicts a complex set of frayed relationships for which restoration proves an apt metaphor. Honors include the Sundance Dramatic Screenwriting Award, and top prizes at the Jerusalem and Karlovy Vary International Film Festivals.
